    I've shocked many friends, real life friends and facebook acquaintances/followers with my enthusiastic support of this proposed unity government.

    “White Privilege” The Big Antisemitic Lie

    That nasty term hides/denies how most Jewish immigrants struggled in their early decades in America.

    Fascists Reject Laws; Take the Streets

    Counting The Omer, Easier Than Calculating End of Corona Lock-down

    Most people can adjust to something difficult when they know how long it will last. But even with all the complicated computations and guesswork the experts have been coming up with, there are too many unknowns to factor in for any accuracy.

    Remember: Even The Best of Election Polls are Inaccurate

    We should vote carefully, according to which party, or candidate we honestly feel will do the best job. And then pray that Gd will give them wisdom.


    For some inexplicable, fokokt reason, instead of annexing and declaring full sovereignty over all of that miraculously liberated Land, like any normal country would do, Israeli leaders decided to hold it to use as "payment" for "peace" with our enemies. On the whole, our enemies haven't taken the bribe.

    Trump Should Trash His “Peace Plan”

    Pres. Trump, You CANNOT impose a "peace plan" on terrorists and their victims.

    Shiloh Musings: Israel-Jordan were Supposed to be Like India-Pakistan, But…

    In 1921 Great Britain handed the Hashemite Abdullah a very large portion of Mandated Palestine to invent a kingdom for him, all of the land east of the Jordan River.

    Is Aliyah, Moving To Israel the “Elephant in the Room” for Jews Who Live...

    Shiloh Musings: We Were Not Illegal Migrants in Egypt!

    Shiloh Musings: “Peace” in the Middle East? Not With Such a History

    Anyone who claims that there can be peace is talking total fiction. The main uniting ideology among the Arab countries surrounding the State of Israel and those even further away is our destruction. They're not even shy about it. And this anti-Israel hate/ideology is all over the world.

    Shiloh Musings: Aliyah: Not The “Ultimate Sacrifice”

    Of course I understand that Aliyah, the move to Israel is sometimes more difficult for others as it was for me, but to call it The "Ultimate Sacrifice" puts a value on living outside of Eretz Yisrael, the Land of Israel over living here that has no place in Judaism or reality.

    Shiloh Musings: American Presidential Campaigns New Reality TV

    The Left/Democrats have been searching for a celebrity to run in 2020. Administrative and political experience aren't necessary. They are looking for someone who has a big smile and can generate applause. Being black, female and able to learn lines is another bonus,

    Shiloh Musings: Why is The Secular Left so Obsessed with Converting Us?

    The secular Left suffers from an insecurity, since their religion/ideology keeps changing with the seasons. And they never know who's going to ask too many questions and end up taking on traditional Judaism and/or Right views.

    I am extremely unhappy with the so-called "anti-corruption" demonstrations going on here in Israel. They are to force the hand of the already Left wing judiciary and the police.
